“Every man prays in his own language, and there is no language that God does not understand.” — Duke Ellington, from the Third Sacred Concert
Duke Ellington, the world-renowned, genre-jumping titan of Jazz called his three Sacred Concerts ”the most important thing I have ever done,” and they are, indeed, among the major achievements of his life. In this delightful evening devoted to the best of all three Sacred Concerts, the Queens College Choral Society will join musicians from the Queens College Jazz Ensemble for a performance that blends choral singing with big-band sound. Don’t miss this moving musical experience that is both exhilarating and divine.
Student Tickets are available for $5.00 with a Queens College Student ID at the Box Office only.
